News You Can Use- Big Sales


It’s been a few days since my last post.  My Birthday was Sunday, and my husband took Monday off for an extended weekend.  What with birthday festivities and technical difficulties (evil Time Warner) I haven’t really had a chance to do a new post.  But, there are a couple sales going on that you should know about.

First, Tarte Cosmetics is having it’s Friends and Family sale until August 6, 2012 at 11:59pm EST.  Use code FFAUG at checkout for 30% off your order.  They also offer free shipping on orders of $40 or more. Be aware that not everything on the site is included in the 30% off deal, so be aware before making a purchase.  I really like Tarte, and their “Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara” is my favorite mascara of all time.  The Amazonian Clay blushes are great, and I’m excited to try out some of the new Maracuja products.  This sale is only valid online at

Also Missha USA is having a Big Summer Sale.  After my last post about crappy US BB Creams, I wanted to alert you about this sale from a Koren brand who offers real BB Creams.  Missha also offers free shipping on orders of $40 or more.  I have tried both the M Perfect Cover BB Cream and the MISA Cho Bo Yang BB Cream.  I personally prefer the M Perfect Cover BB Cream because the Cho Bo Yang is really thick.  It provides excellent all-day coverage, but I found it difficult to blend and a little cakey on my dry skin.  The M Perfect Cover BB Cream had better texture on my skin, and I found it easier to work with.  Missha has a ton of products if you are not interested in BB Creams, so be sure to check them out at if you are interested in seeing what other countries have to offer.



About beautyinbudgetblog

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
